Threadripper 2990WX 32-Core 3.0GHz Game Requirement Analysis
The Threadripper 2990WX 32-Core 3.0GHz is a very high-end CPU based on AMD's 12nm Zen+ microarchitecture. It offers 32 physical cores (64 logical), initially clocked at 3.0Hz, which may go up to 4.2GHz using Turbo Boost. It has an unlocked multiplier, therefore it can be overclocked using traditional methods. It has 64MB of L3 Cache. Level 3 cache is a static memory bank of a processor and it is used to feed it instructions. This processor also supports DDR4 based RAMs with maximum memory support of 1TB. It has a maximum Thermal Power Design of 250W, making it one of the most power intensive processors on the market. Among its many features, Enmotus FuzeDrive for AMD Ryzen, AMD SenseMI Technology, AMD Ryzen VR-Ready Premium, Virtualization, AES, AVX2, FMA4, XFR (Extended Frequency Range) It doesn't feature an integrated GPU. The Threadripper 2990WX 32-Core 3.0GHz's incredibly high core count and middling clock speed make it a great but prohibitively expensive option for gamers that cannot be recommended. It will run AAA games very well. While a high clock speed is a priority for gaming, 32 cores are too excessive for gaming applications in 2018.
